Walk with nature
Since its founding in 1897, we have been engaged in the manufacture and sale of birch crafts for generations in Kakunodate, Semboku City, Akita Prefecture, which is rich in nature.
We at Yayanagi are making products that are close to modern life while inheriting the traditional techniques and methods of making crafts using sakura skin, which is unique in the world.
With the high technology of millimeters that has been passed down from generation to generation, we make tools for living that are safe, secure, easy to use and beautiful, one by one, with all our hearts, and tools that are useful for everyone's lives and in our daily lives. , We will deliver the warmth of nature that makes you feel relieved.
Kabazaiku is the only craft in the world that uses the bark of wild cherry blossoms. If the bark of wild cherry blossoms is peeled off using the technique that has been passed down from generation to generation, it will regenerate in a few years and will not die. It is said that the etymology of the long song of Manyoshu was that the expression "Kani" of Yamazakura was later converted to "Kaba". Kabazaiku is a craft that is attractive for its beauty, but at the same time it is built on the excellent properties of the material. One of its characteristics is the property of suppressing humidity. With the times, products that make the most of the characteristics of inro, medicine baskets, torso, and tea canisters have been created, and traditional techniques have been inherited. Things that you touch every day, such as tea canisters, increase their luster and maintain the luster peculiar to mountain cherry blossoms.
Use it and
polish it again
Yayanagi's Kabazaiku can be used continuously by repairing it, such as by re-polishing or re-pasting it. What you can do because it is not an industrial product but handmade. We will continue to inherit the technology so that we can continue to make products that will be loved for generations and continue to respond to repairs. We can also repair products of other companies and attach them to the patterns and tools of your kitchen knives, so please feel free to contact us first.
